ASeTTS Board, staff and volunteers are drawn from a wide range of backgrounds.


Janet Holmes à Court
Janet is owner of the Janet Holmes à Court Collection yet makes the time to assist the community in so many ways. She was awarded the Order of Australia in 1995 as a tribute to her work in business, arts and community. She has chosen to work with ASeTTS because of her commitment to refugees and is particularly concerned about Temporary Protection Visa holders who continue to live with uncertainty. Her values of peace, tolerance, respect for every individual and the importance of family and employment are tightly aligned to ASeTTS vision and mission.
ASeTTS benefits from her compassion, networking ability at all levels and first class business competencies.
